Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by sopwith2k Concept good but follow through POOR!
The tool drove the first 26 posts just great but on number 27 the moveable valve/handle broke. The downward stroke of the handle is stopped buy a split ring that is inadequate to stop the moveable handle. The ring deformed and came out of the housing. I reinstalled the split ring but it let go again after two posts. The manufacturer needs to finish engineering the product. The idea is great but the execution is inadequate.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Vigneron Striker TS
Purchased the Striker TS to drive stakes in a new vineyard.
The post driver worked better than expected. we drove 1500
posts over three days. The driver developed an air leak on the forth day, I called the manufacturer and explained the problem. They were helpful , friendly, and mailed the replacement part that day. Best of all this product is made in the USA and can be serviced or you can get replacement parts quickly.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by coloKid oil it up
The striker is only helpful if you oil it up. When oiled properly it can give you twenty hits in a minute enough to put in the most stubborn posts with little effort. After each posts your air will most likely be depleted and you will have to wait for your air compressor to catch up. One guy could put in a fence that he couldn't without the striker. Great product.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by tcranch Good but a little expensive
This product helps with the pounding of tposts, but keep in mind it is still labor intensive. Overall, it did help alleviate physical exertion for us less physically in shape people! The cost is high, but since there are no other products to compete the company can charge what the market will bare.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Anthony1 This product is great for soft surfaces, hard packed ground, it has difficulty having the power to accomplish it.
Would not recommend this product for heavy commercial construction projects.

This tool does save time setting up new fencing. But the weight of tool will cause you to have an stepstool handy or an helper to lift it off the completed T-post.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by rockinindian let machines do the hard work
Keep a little WD40 in your air inlet every 10 or 15 posts and a small spray inside where the piston driver is and this machine took 80% of the work from my arms.It only weighs 32lbs compaired to the rental driver at 62 lbs is why I opt to purchase one avoiding further back injury to myself (Have back problems) Great tool for the money.This drives the T-post down 12" in less than a minute

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by John bad seals
This air tool worked for 5 min than blew a seal
I opened it up replaced both seals with new ones and now it works ok...you just have to keep oiling it every 10 min or so or it will stick really bad
